carl whittle of first battalion grendeer guards who died on friday from wounds he sphnd sustained in awving in august. these were courageous and much respected men. they gave their lives in the service of their country and we are forever indebted to them. i'm sure the house would join me in welcoming the renaming of the clock tower today as the elizabeth tower, following the campaign led by my friend the member of formoth east, i believe it's a fitting tribute the queen and the service she's given to our country for 50 years. this morning i had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others and will have meetings in addition to my duties in the house today. >> i pay tribute to the troops that have died. we often vote for war in this house but it is far braver people than we have to do the fighting. the number of women who have lost jobs under the government's cuts has been twice the number of the number of men and the statistics out today show at that number of female redundancies is rising over the last few months. in addition, of course, we now have nine government departments wit

pentagon. he and carl evan and several others were talking about a plan that might seek to replace the defense cuts. at long last, after all the fighting, raising some taxes. is that, do you think -- is such an idea -- would that be amenable in the house? is anyone talking about it do you think? as we get closer to the fiscal cliff, do you think it might become something people would be willing to consider? >> that remains to be seen. even in the heat of the elections this november, then is the time we need to sit down and be very, very serious about dealing with sequestration. it would be disastrous for the military especially. we would go back to pre world war ii army and marine personnel. we would go back to 1915 naval ships, navy ships. and in this kind of a world that we live in, we simply cannot do that. so i think the pressure would be intense. after the election. people say, well, the election is over, let's get down to business. i think the pressure will be intense to deal with the sequestration matter. and i have noticed -- i think it is the so-called "gang of six" in the sen

one small capital. carl smith, a great marine corps fighter pilot. he started in the navy but trained with jim amos back in 1970. you saw the handwriting on the wall and joined the marine corps and can attest to this. i was company and my son joe, who is a major in the marine corps reserve and we were hanging out. i hear a shout and it was jim and bonnie. they were stationed there at the time and we had a great visit. they could have just kept going and we would have never seen them or known they were in the p.x. they are the most engaged and positive couple you will ever meet. jim has confronted the challenges i mentioned earlier facing the marine corps. he is relentless in trying to reduce the suicides, an effort that he started when he was the acting person. he has refused to accept the status quo. and i know that this is an issue that wabse in his heart. when he had to take on a tough procurement issue, which the marines have been developing for decades and been in the pipeline and this was the vehicle to get the marines shipped to shore. he took action and mapped out a more promi
